We believe that a market-based resource allocation will be effective in a cloud computing environment where resources are virtualized and delivered to users as services. We propose such a market mechanism to allocate services to participants efficiently. The mechanism enables users (1) to order a combination of services for workflows and co-allocations and (2) to reserve future/current services in a forward/spot market. The evaluation shows that the mechanism works well in probable setting.
